The Power of Perception: Leadership, Emotional Intelligence and the Gender Divideserves as a practical guide to educate women, men and organizations on the barriers that keep women from fully contributing in the workplace. These include differences in leadership style and emotional intelligence, gender bias and stereotypes, breadwinner and caregiver responsibilities, and differences in gender culture which show up every day at work and home.The Power of Perceptionalso explores significant changes in global demographic trends and how our youngest generations are impacting the workplace.

The Power of Perceptionclearly illustrates the reasons that we don't see more women leading our global businesses. It has nothing to do with women's skills and competencies and everything to do with perceptions of women as leaders, as workers, as mothers, and as wives. These perceptions have a significant impact on promotion for many women. Perception is reality-and it's powerful.

The Power of Perceptionprovides personal stories of women's journeys, real-world examples, and is based on the author's own research as well as that of many others. Every chapter includes practical, easy-to-apply strategies, summary points, and reflection questions to empower women, men, and organizations to fully leverage talent and diversity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great read! I heard Jessica Bennett speak at a conference and soon after read her book. It's filled with practical ways to incorporate your feminist views and actions in the workplace/office setting. Although a serious topic, the material is presented in a funny and engaging way. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical Advice! I absolutely loved this book. I carried it around with me everywhere so much that the back cover got ripped off and it got wet many times. It was such a great read and had so much great advice to help with workplace sexism. I will re-read this book many times. A must have for all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed Reading this book was like sitting down with a bunch of girlfriends and have those "me too!" moments. Sexism is real in the workplace, and an easy-to-read book like this was such a wonderful place to begin figuring out how to deal with it constructively. Full of facts and resources; highly recommended.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A worthy read I had to read this for my book club this month. While it's not something I would have chosen for myself, it was a decent read. To be fair, I don't think it contained any new, revealing information. The data and situations the author speaks of, I'm sure are familiar to most women. Even the suggestions as to what to do and how to approach different situations is not "newsflash" information. However the issue is that most of us as women know what we should/must do but just don't do it. Jessica Bennett tries to provide us with the push that we need to make our voices heard. Although this shouldn't be necessary in this day and age, this is a fight that is far from over.
